All right, so here we are at Arkansas SpinalCare. It is May 1st of 2013 and sir, what is your name? Ray Bennet. Ray. And where areyou from? Benton, Arkansas. Benton, all right. Well, you are finishing up with your carehere, at Arkansas Spinal Care, getting pretty close to the end. That's correct. Before youcame here, how long had you had your severe pain in your back and legs? 24 years. 24 years,all right. That's a long time to hurt. How much of your quality of life did that 24 yearssteal from you? Well, I was only 33 when I hurt my back and I'm 57 now so, my wife was2 months pregnant whenever I was hurt. My daughters never known me not to hurt. Wow,man. Wow. That's huge! I am sorry, I didn't

mean to make you emotional there, but I meanthis is a big deal. It's a big deal and we wouldn't be doing this if you weren't doinga lot better, so that's the beautiful part about this story. And we will get more ofthat here in a minute. Before you came here, what are some of the things that you havetried over that 24 years, to try to get relief from your pain? Well, with the s, Ihave tried everything that they told me to do. I did epidural's, prednisone, cortisoneshots. I went through basically years of physical therapy and finally realized physical therapywasn't helping. And it's basically, just live your life and live with the pain. And we bothknow you've had a couple of back surgery's

that didn't work and then in conjunction withthat you also had an episode where you were getting steroid injections. I tell peopleall the time how dangerous those things are but you have a first hand account of trulysome of the risks and side effects can go with something that is suppose to be a simpleprocedure. Will you share that with us? Yeah, I was getting epidurals for probably, I wasprobably7 or 8 months in, getting them every month. And I had had a syringe of air injectedinto my spinal fluid and they went in and let me leave the that day, tellingme well, you're going to have a headache. Well, I had had epidurals before and knowthat you're going to have a headache if you

get up after you have one. And so by the timeI got home, I had an ambulance waiting for me to take me to another and theytook me to a and I tried to explain to them that I had an epidural that day, apain block shot they called them, they had injected air into my spinal fluid and it haddone what they call a blood patch on me. Which I don't know what a blood patch is, but that'swhat they informed them. And that couldn't help me. So then I was taken to thebaptist , where they ran a CT scan on me and said you have a air on your brain.And so they hung me where my head would be down, basically upside down and started puttingIV fluid in me and it took 8 days to get the

air off of my brain and that was the end ofthe epidurals. That sounded like a lot of fun (being sarcastic). (*slight laughing*)What are some of the other things? Tell me about the back surgery's. You thought whenyou were going into have back surgery, I mean I meet people all the time in here who havehad failed surgery's, we treat them all the time. What were your experiences with thesurgery and then the recovery process, tell me what you went through with that. Well,basically the first time I had surgery was, I really didn't go in the for surgery,because at the time I'd had an MRI done and in the MRI they didn't detect anything onthe MRI, so I went in there for a Monogram

and they did the Monogram, and the said you have a herniated disk and we are going to do surgery in the morning. And Ireally didn't like the pressure he was putting me under because I wanted time to kind of,take it all in, but he said well you're either going to, his exact words are, and I am quotinghim, quot;I'll either cut you now or I'll cut you later. You might as well go ahead anddo it and get it over with.quot; So, the next morning, they wheeled me into surgery andI had surgery. So, he told me, he said quot;You go home and you lay up and I'll see ya in6 weeks.quot; So, I go home and I'm laying and then in my bed that we put in theliving room by the front door so if someone
